CopySafe Web Extension for Joomla

Copy Protect Web Page Extension for Joomla

Joomla extension for copy protectionThis extension enables the insertion of CopySafe Web images into Joomla posts and pages from the Joomla page editor. This Joomla extension is provided for free, but the CopySafe Web software requires licensing for your web site to employ domain lock.

  • Copy protect images displayed on web pages.
  • Safe from PrintScreen and all screen capture.
  • Images cannot be retrieved from browser cache.
  • Domain-locked images cannot be displayed elsewhere.
  • Images stored on the server are safe from webmasters.
  • Encrypted images cannot be saved or scraped.

How this Joomla Extension Works

When editing a page or post, you may insert the short code by clicking on the [CopySafe Web] icon above the HTML editor toolbar where the cursor was last placed in the text area. After uploading or selecting an existing image class file (from a previous upload), you can then nominate the security settings to use for the page or post. Different pages can use different security and display settings:

 Width  Width in pixels of the image area
 Height   Height in pixels of the image area
 Border Frame Add a border to the image nominating frame thickness and color 
 Hyperlink Add a clickable link to the image and nominate target frame 
 CaptureSafe  Enable protection from Print Screen and screen capture 
 KeySafe Disable use of web browser menus (browser-dependent) 
 RemoteSafe Prevent access to computers using remote or virtual connection

Default Settings for this Joomla Extension

Default settings can be applied to all CopySafe Web pages and posts. Most useful for corporate networks and others who need to limit access to certain types of web browsers, the default settings page allows you to nominate which ones you want to allow. Any browsers not qualifying will be redirected. You can also select from 3 modes, which can be changed at any time:

 Demo Mode  Allows use of the Module without requiring a CopySafe Web license
 Licensed  For users with the CopySafe Web software for encrypting images
 Debug Mode  Displays the HTML for object tag instead of displaying the image

CopySafe Web Licensing

While this CMS add-on is free, the encrypted images to upload need to be created by the CopySafe Web software.

CopySafe Web Version Detection

When CopySafe Web is used on a web page, if a visitor does not have the browser plugin or ArtisBrowser installed, they are redirected for download and install instructions. This Joomla extension includes everything needed including download and error pages.

While this 20 x 20 pixel image may not be registered for your website on the Internet, it will function on any test server running at localhost. When prompted to upload or select your first image, you use this one to get started.

CopySafe Web encrypted images can be be displayed at their original size (calculated from the file name) or they can be rescaled by setting width and height in the shortcode.
